Illustration Friday - Cake

Baking a cake is half the fun!!

My mother always made cakes from scratch, she still does as she refuses to believe cakes from a bakery are better than hers.

As kids, she always let us help and I used to enjoy it so much. When I was really young I used to create my own 'pretend' cakes with all sorts - mud, shampoo, sugar - whatever I could find.

  12. I agree with your mom. There is nothing quite like a homemade cake. I have so many fond memories of my grandmother's confections ~ and I always got to lick the mixers!
